About Our Library

  • Elkins Park Library The Elkins Park School Library Media Center (LMC) has an extensive collection of over 13,000 titles. With computer work stations connected to media resources, the LMC is designed to complement and maximize classroom instruction. During weekly visits and Reading Language Arts class sessions, students enjoy selecting new books and collaborating on multimedia projects and presentations. This hands-on environment is a hub of learning where Elkins Park School students utilize and develop independent skills as critical readers of fiction and non fiction.
